Grocery shopping promo codes for May 2021

Last year’s embarrassing Supermarket Dash right before the Circuit Breaker taught us this: stockpiling food only leads to unnecessary panic and food waste. After all, fresh food can only be kept for so long, unless you have one of those horror-movie-type deep freezers in your house.

And if you’re one of the enlightened ones who waited out the madness this time around, here’s a list of 12 online grocery shopping promo codes for you to utilise this May to tide you through the mini “lockdown” and grant you more savings along the way.

1. Shopee Supermarket – up to 50% cashback on first 3 orders

Our pre-Covid selves would’ve raised a quizzical brow at yet another online supermarket, but our restricted 2021 selves are rejoicing. From being our one-stop shop for all things on the cheap, Shopee now brings us Shopee Supermarket – chock-full of fresh food and everyday necessities at real bargain prices. 

The good news begins with this deal: 50% cashback on your first three orders with no minimum spend – a deal that’s valid all the way till 31st December 2021. Shipping comes free with orders above $40, and if not, you’ll only have to pay a sweet discounted fee of $1.99 (U.P. $4) for delivery in the month of May.

Pro-tip: Look out for stackable vouchers to bump up your savings and mark your weekly calendars for that grocery run on Wednesday and the weekends – we hear that’s when prices hit an all-time low.

Promo code: None. Vouchers are claimable on their website.
Valid till: Redeemed

2. Redmart – Up to 20% off Unilever brands

When it comes to buying groceries online, it’s always the fresh foods that give us a serious case of “hover finger”. I mean, who can blame us when we can’t exactly touch and feel the goods the same way we do in our neighbourhood supermarkets IRL.

Thankfully, Redmart offers us reassurance in the form of its product reviews where everything edible from broccoli to ribeye steak comes with a quality marker.
